    16 whole jumbo pasta shells, cooked per package directions
    2 cups red sauce
    1 cup ricotta cheese
    1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella
    2 oz freshly grated parmesan
    1 large egg
    1/2 tsp onion powder
    1 tsp Italian seasoning
    10 oz pkg frozen spinach, thawed and drained-squeezed very dry
    1 cup chopped mushrooms sauteed in 2 T butter
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    1 cup shredded cheese for finishing (I used mozzarella for the nutritional info)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F).
Spread 1/2 cup of red sauce into the bottom of a greased 99 inch baking dish.
Combine ricotta and the next 10 ingredients in a medium sized bowl. Stir well, to combine.
Spoon filling into shells. Arrange the shells in the prepared dish. Top with the remaining red sauce. Cover with foil and bake for about 30-40 minutes. The last ten minutes of baking, uncover the pan, sprinkle with a handful of your favorite cheeses, then return (uncovered) to the oven until everything is melted, bubbling, and smells amazing.
Remove from oven, let stand for five minutes.

This is one of our favorite meatless meals-hearty and filling with a good for you punch of spinach. Serve with a salad and crusty garlic bread for a quick and easy meal.
